What to expect from our Trading Courses?

Some people wish to explore becoming day traders. That means making a regular income from trading on a daily basis and making short gains on short-term market moves.

Others are looking to take positions to make profits on a more medium to longer term basis. Such traders do not need to spend much time on their trading. In some cases a weekly or monthly check on their positions is enough to build a profitable trading account.

No matter what type of trading you want to do, our team here at the Institute of Investing & Financial Trading will provide you with a comprehensive blend of face to face training, professional expertise and ongoing support in your journey to make money on the markets.

Peter Brown, renowned commentator and veteran markets professional, takes a hands on role in all training programmes. We have a range of courses available to suit you, no matter your market experience. Our Diploma in Trading was created with beginners in mind while in recent times, it has acted as a refresher for the experienced trader.
